RISM lists, for most manuscript sources, not 4vv + chorus (with one exception) but rather _15 or 19_ voices, chorus, orchestra.

Possibly not published as such until the Bärenreiter Telemann edition of the latter half 20th century, near as this editor can tell?

Actually, there are 20 vocal parts, so it 20 voices, chorus, orchestra.--BachFan 04:31, 1 March 2018 (CET)
